Question Answer
Live attenuated vaccineWeak form of the "wild" virus/bacteria, must replicate to be effective. Immune response is similar to natural infection (usually effective in 1 dose); DO NOT give to someone w/ compromised immune system (examples: MMR, Varicella, Nasal flu vaccine)
Inactivated vaccineGenerally require 3-5 doses. Immune response mostly humoral. Antibody titer falls over time; Principle antigen may not be defined
Active immunitypermanent; individual forms their own antibodies to antigen; has disease/gets vaccination
Passive immunitytemporary; individual gets antibodies from another source; gamma globulin, breast feeding
Invalid contraindicationsMild illness, Antimicrobial tx, disease exposure/convalescence, pregnant/immunosuppressed person in household, Breastfeeding, Preterm birth, FH of adverse events, Tb skin test/Mult vaccines
